Drive the Future: Best Practices for Equitable Transportation Electrification in the Midcontinent

April 27th 10:00am to 11:30am

As automakers, electric utilities, policy makers, and others work to scale electric vehicle adoption in the Midwest and Gulf Coast regions, there’s an increased opportunity to make sure that policies are designed and that programs are implemented with equity, diversity, and inclusion in mind. Addressing equity in policy and programs ensures that historically disadvantaged communities facing greater pollution and less access to social goods and services are not left behind.

On April 27, 10:00 to 11:30 am CT, EVHybridNoire and the Great Plains Institute are co-hosting an event where you will have the chance to learn from three experts in the fields of equity, e-mobility, and workforce development during a moderated Q&A session where you can ask panelists questions. After the Q&A session, you will have the opportunity to have a focused conversation on equity best practices with panelists and other attendees on one of several topics, including:

  • Utility programs
  • State policy
  • Charging infrastructure
  • Climate justice and public health
  • Workforce development

Our panelists:

  • Isa Gaillard, Environmental Equity Program Manager at The Greenlining Institute
  • Jamez Staples, President of Renewable Energy Partners, Inc.
  • Terry Travis, Co-Founder of EVHybridNoire
